Founded in 1991, the Regional Association for Research on the Gulf of Maine (RARGOM) is an association of institutions that are actively involved in research, management, and stewardship activities related to the Gulf of Maine and its watershed.
Our SURG program has been attending RARGOM for several years, and we are thrilled our 2020 cohort will have the ability to share their research at a professional conference. It is a wonderful opportunity to hone their career-building skills and enhance their network. To view the full list of abstracts and register for the event, please visit the RARGOM website. Although we encourage you to enjoy other presentations, the SURG lighting talks will take place at the following times:
